I am having very bad FPS on DOTA 2 native.

I am using:

  • Ubuntu 13.10 for X64 bit systems
  • AMD FX-6300 CPU
  • 8GB DDR3 - 1600MHZ
  • Radeon 7770 GHZ Edition with 14.1 Beta Drivers

What I have tried up so far:

  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - same problem
  • AMD 13.12 Catalyst - same problem
  • Source Drivers - same problem
  • Proprietary drivers provided by Ubuntu - Steam won't launch

Is it possible to help to helm me out with this very troublesome problem. This is the only game that I do play in my free time on the PC.

Regards, P. Mihai

Fixed this one by myself.

  • Upgraded from 13.10 to 14.04.
  • Made sure that Radeon dynamic power management (dpm) is enabled in grub file (see Radeon Driver)
  • used the Open Source Graphics Driver from the Oibaf ppa

And that's it. Everything works like a charm.
